Many people may have heard the age old phrase, “get a trade and you will be set for life.” And, for some this is very true. A great example of this possibility can be attributed to Western Australians; Abbey Lee Sergeant and Ursula Lyndon. Abbey was the winner of the National 2011 Australian Apprentice (Trainee) of the year. Ursula won the prestigious Western Australian ‘Australian Apprentice of the Year’ for 2011 by the ‘Skilled Group’.
To find out more about Abbey’s and Ursula’s success, go to the following links ‘Skills one TV’ and ‘Skilled Awards WA Australian Apprentice of the Year’. Abbey and Ursula are just two examples of apprentices and trainees excelling in their chosen area.
The ‘Apprenticeship Ambassadors’ on the Western Australian Apprenticentre website are also a great way to find out more about the amazing opportunities offered for people exploring this dynamic and varied career path.
